The first three Harry Potter games were pretty good as well.

Ratchet and Clank (PS4) The Game, Based on the Movie, Based on the Game.

Never played it but Lord of the Rings The Two Towers and Return of the King were supposed to be great back in the day.

This....Definitely my favorite tie in



Goldeneye (N64 - already mentioned)
Aladdin (SNES and Genesis - already mentioned)
Alien 3 (SNES)
Jurassic Park (SNES)



Lord of the rings games on ps2 i think and Golden eye on N64.
Also had i Jurassic Park game on SNES or PS1 but that did not really tie in that much with the movie as it had you playing the dinosaurs for a big part of it,also played alladin and the lion king on SNES.

Oooh i played Batman on gamegear and terminator and Robocop on devices i do not remember:P

Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor. The orc ranking system and the way it was worked into the gameplay was awesome, and the combat felt great.

While this is based on Middle Earth from the books, it isn't based on any of the LOTR or Hobbit movies.

While this is based on Middle Earth from the books, it isn't based on any of the LOTR or Hobbit movies, and no Shadow of Mordor movies has ever been made.

It seemed to me pretty clearly based in the world of the films; orcs, Gollum, the rangers, elves, etc were all depicted just as in the Peter Jackson movies.



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

What movie tells the story of Shadow of Mordor?

The OP included "tie-ins" and games "based on" movies rather than just direct adaptions. Most such games take huge liberties or tell stories that diverge quite dramatically from the source material anyway.

It doesn't tie-in to any movies. It simply happens in-between The Hobbit and TLOTR stories, in-order to tell stories that won't affect any of them.

The movies may have inspired the looks of the creatures and whatnot, but calling this a tie-in or being based on any of the movies is quite a stretch.
